Sunset Striper Slam
Capt Ant reports the Light was alive with life last night with once again producing massive Porgys on the jig, blues and Doug Seay’s pool winning Striper! We had an hour if no tide but that didn’t stop the scup. Super Mate Steve Ho filleted 3 bushels of scup, you couldn’t keep them off the hook. At the start if the tide we caught some blues to 8lbs and unfortunately once we had a fast enough drift it was dark. Still a great night and bags of fillets for every customer.
Half Day Fluke PM
Captain Ant reports a good afternoon of fluking. In the start we had some nice fluke coming over the rails, but then the tide changed and it was wind against tide and fishing slowed just a bit. We still had a great day fishing and the fluke are still biting!
Montauk Local Porgies
Capt Dave reports good fishing throughout the morning and into the afternoon with a lot of activity in the water. Very very good in the AM mostly big porgies with a few Fluke and one striped bass in the mix. The pool winner today was John Monzallillo from franklin Sq NY with a 4lb porgy.
Half Day Fluke AM
Capt Carl reports more Absolutely Phenomenal half day fishing on the Viking Starship! We had Keepers galore over flowing out of the buckets once again! There were tons of shorts too, keepers everyone was very busy! It was so good that the crew was cutting fish back at the dock! what a day! special mention goes out to the Hampton Bays High School Science Department for coming out on this fine day. The Pool winner was Elsie Mae Brigham from Shelter Island with a 5.2lb Second Place went to Brian Hazell From Stony Brook, NY with a 4lb
The Abyss Original
Captain Steven Sr reports that it turned out okay for our 2014 Abyss Original with the weather playing a big part. We headed for the fluke grounds at Nantucket, which turned out very good. We had fish on all the drops! The only thing was there were some dogfish around that were a real pain in the ass! On day 2, the tiles were on the slow side, until 2pm- then they turned around and it got good with some really nice sized tiles to 43lbs! On day 3, we hit a bit of a wall and the cod turned out to be a bust! They were not on the wrecks in the area we fished, which was frustrating. This trip was a tough one, but we got through and managed some quality fish on board.
Here are the pool winners:
Day 1: Block Island Fluke- Noel Otto 6.5lb fluke
Day 2: Nantucket Fluke- John Gagliardo 7.5lb fluke
Day 3: Tile- John Gagliando 42lb tile
Honorable Mention goes to Nick Ljekocevic 38lb tile
